An American woman and British man who met online playing chess have met up again in a Wetherspoons to rekindle their romance. 

Felicia DiSalvo jetted 3,300 miles across the Atlantic to visit Zak Broadhurst for the second time and they went to The Punch Bowl in York.

The couple and his friends enjoyed a game of chess while eating chips and drinking Becks beer in the pub.

Zak, 22, is studying psychology in York. Felicia, 21, who forked out £1,300 on flights to come to the UK, said: ‘It’s been serious for a while. Zak won chess as always.’

The pair met again in York and played chess with their friends, ate food together and drank beers at a Wetherspoons, The Punch Bowl

She first flew over to meet Zak near where he lives at another Wetherspoons pub – The Moon Under Water – in Manchester last September.

She said she is a big fan of the fish and chips with curry sauce at the popular chain pubs.

Felicia said at the time: ‘When you spontaneously meet a British person on the internet and learn all the Spoons lore.

‘So you fly all the way to play chess.

‘Zak thank you for changing the trajectory of my life decisions this rapidly.’

Friend Josh Bean said: ‘This is a hell of a ‘how did you meet’ story for the grandkids. I love it.’
